Default which power supply

Im getting the ThermalTake Tsunami VA3000BNA case, and I want a silent power supply. Which one is better . . . the ThermalTake Silent PurePower 420W or the Antec TRUE430 430W? The Antec is $30 more, but I know the name, and they make pretty good products.

how quiet are the 2? theyre about the same watt (420 and 430), so the only difference would be the sound they make . . .

which one is quieter?

i guess i'll just go with the antec . . . something as important as the PSU, i shouldn't try to save too much money by going for PSUs not as good

i'll probably get the 480W from antec . . . $10 more, but i get 50W more too
